Hi
I have a dual O.S system running on two HDD's. XP primary, Win 7 secondary. The router installed and setup on the primary XP disk.I have also set up A static I/P address, Does the secondary Win 7 disk need to be set up with it's own static I/P address if so how, there is no router login from this disk as it is only setup from the primary.
Does this make sense?
regards

I have a Dual Boot on this system, each OS is on a separate drive and I don't use any software to connect to the Router and I can't see why you would need to either.

Boot the Win7 OS and if the Ethernet Cable is attached it should connect to the internet.

win 7 does connect to the internet the problem is that it suffers from disconnections more so than the XP disk.

If both suffer from disconnects I would try a new cable first, making sure the cable has the 'grips' at either end. A loose cable can cause this grief and is usually last to be checked.

If that is swapped and it still drops connection, you may want to unseat the Ether Card if it is not 'On Board' if it is on board I would look for a new driver next.

If that fails to fix it and the card is On Board I would try a new card in a slot. After all that I would be contacting the ISP and asking them to test the Router.
